Democrats going down in 2010?

I know it’s early, but this is music to my ears.

Politico has the scoop.

Democrats giddy with possibilities only six months ago now confront a perilous 2010 landscape signaled by troublesome signs of President Barack Obama’s political mortality, the plunging popularity of many governors and rising disquiet among many vulnerable House Democrats.

The issue advantage has shifted as well, with Democrats facing the brunt of criticism about the pace of stimulus package spending, anxiety over rising unemployment rates and widespread uneasiness over the twin pillars of Obama’s legislative agenda: his cap-and-trade approach to climate change and the emerging health care bill.

Bolstered by historical trends that work in the GOP’s favor — midterm elections are typically hostile to the party in power — and the prospect of the first election in a decade without former President George W. Bush either on the ballot or in office, Republicans find themselves on the offensive for the first time since 2004.

Massachusetts governor and good pal of Barry O. is trailing Republican Charlie Baker by six points.  The kicker?  Baker is just making his run official today and is a virtual unknown.  Deval blames his dismal numbers on strong leadership.  Now who does that sound like?

  1. Not only are they going down, they should be going down. Remember 1994 when Peter Jennings claimed that the voters had thrown a temper tantrum like a two year old does? Well I hope that we throw a massive temper tantrum next year and make sure that Obama does not have a rubber stamp congress. I would love to see the mediocre Barbara Boxer turned out of the Senate.
